An open source project to offer a development environment for marrying scripting with Java has recently gained the participation of Oracle Corporation engineers. The open source Grails project integrates Groovy, a dynamic language, with the Java environment. Grails includes a scripting capability that can co-exist with Java in the same development project.

There has been much criticism recently of Java as being a heavyweight technology thatís not suitable for developing web sites. Gurus such as , such as Ruby on Rails, as a better alternative than Java for creating simple database-powered web applications.

Grails

Grails is an alternative to Ruby on Rails for developers who want to leverage their Java skills. It enables developers to use the Groovy scripting language for lightweight applications and Java for the heavy lifting, such as transaction processing.
 

The Grails framework includes components for simplifying web application development. It provides a viable alternative to developing with PHP, Perl or Python. Grails supports integration of database programming with Asynchronous Javascript and XML (AJAX). 

The Grails framework provides object-relational mapping and support for Create Read, Update Delete (CRUD) operations. Like Ruby on Rails, Grails implements the Model View Controller (MVC) paradigm for web applications. Grails supports Java Server Pages (JSP), Groovy Server Pages (GSP) and dynamic tag libraries. Grails includes the Jetty web server.

Grails 0.1 was released March 29, 2006. Oracle engineers will contribute to Grails technology, enabling Groovy code to run in conjunction with the Java Virtual Machine.
